    As a recipient of solar (Solar City No Cost) some nine years ago I have benefited with great savings on my UI bill and also have recommended the service to two other individuals who benefited like myself. I was able to buy in after the five-year waiting period and did so. I will go on to say that this has been one of the smartest investments I’ve EVER made. I will be covered by all maintenance & service protections until I am 93. I am sure it will also enhance the value of my property as well.
